Ma’am Aurora Torrijos, our math teacher in first year, met up with a group of LDHS alumni last August 9 at Shakey’s in SM Manila. Traveling all the way from Cavite, her home base now, Ma’am was accompanied by daughter Roan, son Darwin, and her lovely granddaughter.
Those who also attended this meeting were classmate Lito Parungo (who was with friend Marvin Ocaya), Ma’am Beth Bustamante and Luis Cuevas of Batch ’82.
We remember Mrs. Torrijos as one of our favorite teachers. She retired in 2006 and for sure her former students, including us, still appreciate her very effective way of teaching mathematics.
Ma’am was supposed to attend our July 2008 reunion in Laguna, but had to beg off the last minute because of an urgent matter she had to attend to. She promised not to miss the grand reunion Batch 1978 is hatching this December.
